I agree about the name change. We want to use the same name the
Debian kernel package will use for the architecture. I propose to name
it s3c24xx, are you fine with that name?

I'm currently adapting Luca's patch to more closely follow what other
arm subarchitectures do. I mainly followed the iop32x example and added
an openmoko flavour which will create a network-console uBoot image
which should support both GTA01 and GTA02. I hope to submit my patches

Do you think that we have to wait committing anything until we have
a kernel in the archive? Until we don't switch to a VCS which supports
easy local branching and shareing of these branches (hint, hint git...)
this would be a major pain in the ass. So I hope the d-i team allows us
to commit our work as soon as the basic nameing is sorted out and the
patches are sane.
